The Lady Outlaws volleyball squad dominated play at the Cascade Invite on Saturday, September 8, and walked off the court as undefeated champs for the second straight year. Fourteen 3A and 4A teams were in attendance, including 4A Marshfield, who are the defending 4A state champions.

Sisters began pool play against 4A Junction City and 4A Stayton and beat both teams in three straight sets.

The Outlaws faced Corbett (3A) in their first match of afternoon bracket play. Sisters used aggressive serving to cruise past the Cardinals in two straight sets (25-12, 25-17).

The Outlaws then faced 4A North Bend in the semi-finals and showed a gritty defense that blocked tough at the net and passed extremely well to fly past the Lady Bulldogs, once again in straight sets (25-13, 25-13).

The championship game was a matchup between the Outlaws and No. 1 Marshfield. While both teams went back and forth in scoring, the Outlaws battled the very tough opponent with their high-flying ability on full display. Their entire front line blocked and hit the ball all over the floor.

Coach Rory Rush said, “We really showed our athleticism today. Our girls were aggressive and showed their ability to play above the net. This group of girls is fun to coach, and fun to watch!”

Two days earlier, the Outlaws rescheduled their home game to a road game at Elmira on Wednesday, due to a lack of referees.

Sisters won in three straight sets (25-14, 25-15, 25-8), but it wasn’t pretty. The Outlaws missed many of their serves and struggled on serve-receive. Gracie Vohs led the team with 17 kills and Holly Davis dished out 30 assists.

The Outlaws were scheduled to play at home against Harrisburg on Tuesday, September 12. On Thursday they hit the road for a match against the Lady Billies at Pleasant Hill.
